Recovery from Tape with
NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Faster and Simpler Recoveries

Restore the following workloads directly from tape storage:

  • Virtual: VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and Nutanix AHV virtual machines
  • Physical: Windows and Linux physical machines as VMware vSphere VMs
  • Cloud: Amazon EC2 instances.

This simplifies and quickens the recovery process since you do not have to move the data from tape to a staging repository first and then restore it to your infrastructure.

Enhance Performance and Security

Apply Network Acceleration to speed up the recovery process and reduce the load on your network, especially during busy hours. You can also use Advanced Bandwidth Throttling to set specific transfer speed limits.

Flexible Recovery Destination

Simply recover workloads to the destination of your choice. You can select a standalone host or a cluster where you want to recover the machine. For EC2 instance recovery, you can select a region and a network where the instance should be restored.
